Where does it say that we can't collect on a minor child? Can you provide me with the fdcpa code. Thank you
Reply from DebtCollectionAnswers.com:
The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act does not specifically address debt collection and minors. But minors can't legally enter into contracts so it isn't relevant.
From your question it sounds like you are a debt collector. We are not attorneys and can't offer legal advice. You should be talking with your attorney to make sure you are complying with the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act as well as state and federal laws regarding collection. If you break the FDCPA you could be sued for damages and forced to pay the plaintiff's attorney fees as well.
